I badly need to learn Spanish. And I want to. I'm going to Mexico next month. Medical tourism. But just the same -- I was picking up Palabras in LA. I managed a bakery. I told the ladies to quit calling me a chinga. Not that I really cared. But anyway Spanish and Mexican Spanish are not the same. I'm saying that I"m mortified that I don't understand you better. Someday soon Spanish will be the dominant language on the planet. I'm going to find a place when I get back and finally do it. I was going to a language school in Beverly Hills. I fell away from it.

Comments23/10/2016 #8 Lisa Gallagher#7 So very true @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, sort of reminds me of the vision beBee has... bringing people together globally while being polite, professional and respectful (my words, paraphrasing, obviously) :-)) I'd like to add compassionate, because I feel beBee is represents this.23/10/2016 #5 Lisa Gallagher#3 #4 Pam and Fatima, I was looking for the original track then came across this. I found this even desirable considering what was on my mind. I know this will sound strange, but I was holding a rock my girlfriend found on the beach (the rock is in the shape of a heart) and she painted water and footsteps on it, then painted the words, "When I needed you most." She sent it to me after my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I was also sending some silent words of my own along with shedding a few tears out to the 'universe.' while holding the rock and thinking of my mom. This was all meant to happen as it did. It makes me feel even closer to both of you too!! Xo22/10/2016 #4 Pamela L. WilliamsGot news for you ladies; I sing this song in the car on my way to work OFTEN! I remember the original track. Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, etc. etc. It was beautiful and I couldn't hear it without it bring a tear. It was written and recorded to bring hope, togetherness in a world that desperately needed it. It does again, if it ever stopped needing it. The only way we stop the tyrants, the bullies is by standing together and saying enough. Step 1: Make sure DT never sets foot in the WH!!!!!22/10/2016 #2 Lisa Gallagher#1 Wow @Fatima Williams, that's so ironic that the word harmony made us both think of this song!! It's such an inspiring song. Sometimes when I listen to the news or read sad things I listen to this song too and I keep praying that one day our world will be as one. I love how you ended your comment, "We are the bees, we can make it happen." I agree!!!22/10/2016 #1 Fatima WilliamsOh wow @Lisa Gallagher You will not believe it when @Deb Helfrich said Harmony in one of the buzzes I thought of this very song. It's like you read my mind. I Just love this song so much and listen to it when I read about all this fighting and bad things that happen in our world. I mostly listen to it on my way back home from work. Thank you ☺ I dedicate this song to all my bees on beBee.🤗🤗🤗🤗 We are the world We are the bees We can make it happen Peace to all ✌

Comments23/10/2016 #12 AnonymousExcellent points @CityVP Manjit. I do appreciate this article @Milos Djukic -thank you for the tag. I will add that the sentence that says, "The Hive aims to serve as a catalyst for the wider community to learn more from one another." - has truly been my experience on beBee. :-)23/10/2016 #11 Pamela L. Williams#9 Well said Manjit. I experienced once again that confounded hierarchical corporate structure this week and I think for the first time it struck me; fear! That's behind all of it, keep the hierarchy strong or risk toppling that which is comfortable. Well I say; Away with comfort; let's work together, buzz together, think together, and we can tackle anything.23/10/2016 #9 CityVP Manjit#6 While the use of the Hive at Elsevier is different to that of beBee, it underlines the role of network hubs as professional spokes. I am in favour of the hub and spoke model because that is what I am trying to get people in my college club to see - but it is not the prevailing mindset because we generally don't think in network terms and only in the sequential form that social media takes or the hierarchical form that organizations propagate. The advantage that Elsevier have is that edges of the network are much more in focus, whereas hives become random in nature unless the hive curator understands how curate with a network mindset. That is the actual link to fractal thinking - until people start to think in network terms, they will only see things in the frame they are used to, but this frame is set to change with the way future generations relate to emerging form of network intelligence.22/10/2016 #5 Pamela L. WilliamsOkay, you can't tell me this is a coincidence!!! The BEE is going global like crazy! It is becoming the symbol for everything new and innovative! Maybe beBee is actually inspiring other industries, which I would be very happy to learn is the truth.
I find the idea presented to be fascinating. I would actually like to try and follow this research. It would be extremely interesting to see if they actually seek innovation or just continue to build upon what already is, which we all know, pharma needs some innovation; Right @Gerald Hecht?
- 22/10/2016Beside being proud of the work taking place here in Israel, the following article brings up a point that has been buzzing around in @Ali Anani's Buzzes and discussions; learning from nature when it comes to understanding how we humans think and behave.
1. Hagay Yavlovich, director of KKL-JNF’s Seeds and Nurseries Division, says one of the causes of colony collapse disorder (CCD) is a monotonous diet. “In central Kansas, for example, the bees see fields of only soybeans and corn, and that’s not good. We assume the fact that we give bees a variety of flowers to taste from makes them stronger and we have fewer problems with CCD....”
Here's a great example of how being aware of providing an environment with a rich diversity of sources for ideas versus a monotonous environment, can influence our own output and those of our employees or team members. As well, if we dominate our fields with a limited product, although we may profit in the short term, we may actually be stunting growth in the long term.How Israel is saving the honeybeeswww.jpost.com The international scourge of colony collapse disorder affects Israel’s bees less than in other countries, due to a variety of innovative...
Comments22/10/2016 #1 Deb HelfrichI was lucky to have access to some eucalyptus honey from some bees living in the mountains near Half Moon Bay, California. Fabulously healing stuff. Most of our honey around Seattle is blackberry bush based, it is less astringent and more smooth tasting.
Over the last week, I have been watching a battle royale over the top of a strand of bamboo as this spider is constantly getting huge meals of bees. Does the bamboo smell of flowers? These seems to be no pollen to collect. Is the spider sending out smells? Bees will get trapped in the web, struggle free, and then circle right back to try to negotiate the web again.
Observing and trying to uncover a hypothesis brings me much joy.

Comments23/10/2016 #12 jesse kaellis#11
Thanks, Irene. Thanks very much. Because that may have been rude. It's your story and your thread. But sometimes -- most times, I already said it somewhere. In terms of writing a response.
My mom was dying. We have empathy because we experienced it ourselves. This was part of an email. A friend whose father was dying.
I worked a graveyard shift. She was close, and I prayed; prayed for her to die. "Take her. Please." There was nothing left.
That body wouldn't support life. In the morning I stopped and looked on one last time and held her hand. I went home to bed, and my father called me at about 2 pm, and that was it.
I had cancer in 1985. It will come back and kill me in the end. I am certain. Or anyway, something will. I pray I don't outlive my sister. She is my best friend. After my father dies, it’s just her. I don't want to be alone. My life has been lonely.
It seems selfish, me talking about my loss and pain when you are confronting your pain. That's how it is, though. My empathy for you comes from the places I've been.
I had to mourn my best friend. He passed at 31 years old. It's just weight.
I keep a place for you in the corner of my heart.23/10/2016 #9 jesse kaellisProblems -- being a drug addict, that's a problem. Being in a relationship, that's a problem. It can present problems. Entering a young woman's life, at say, the age of 16 and the young man he's 22, this could present challenges. So what's the better opportunity? Where am I going to get more space? Where will I make a bigger difference? It's a no-brainer. But this was never about smart. Someday, sometime, I thought with my heart. I felt like living. That's all it is.
People around est used to think that if enough people did the training, and a lot of people did, why then, the world would be transformed. If everyone and his dog did the training then we would have enlightened murderers, because people will never stop killing. Not in my lifetime. Not in a million lifetimes, because spiritual evolution takes place out of time. Everybody has to climb the ladder.
So I'm watching my girlfriend's children push out into the world. I'm watching young fighters at the gym chasing their dreams. I'm watching and seeing my father transform himself into the caring, tender father I never knew at the nadir of my isolation and desolation.
I've got two favorite quotes: "Seek ye me and live." That's Amos 5. That's pretty well wide open. Lots of room there and you can be on any kind of path, even dark roads. And the quest itself is a validation.
The other one I cannot attribute. I heard it and maybe I dreamt it. "We are born broken and we heal by living." But what does that even mean? How can we be born broken? Why are we born into sin? Why are we fallen?
I came to a place in my life, a state of grace and I found this: I give what I didn't get. That's how I heal. I heal by living.22/10/2016 #8 AnonymousWow @Deb Helfrich - you captured the entire essence of the buzz in that one, brilliantly composed sentence, "The fluid mantle, the layer with give, is the crucial component to a functioning structure, community, and planet." Ah, and you are so right, it is the noise that always distracts us from the heart, it would seem. Your kind words humble me - although I must admit, I had to google "zeitgeist" LOL!! I love being the student, and you my friend are one of the great teachers on beBee, with your intelligent and poetic commenting.22/10/2016 #7 Anonymous#5 @Deb Lange - "tectonic plates inside our skulls" now that's an idea worth contemplating! Very interesting as well - exploring the Organization's weaknesses. The existence of weakness being the catalyst to change - awesome! I too, love the Scientist perspective - his discoveries leaning him to compassionate service and a transformed life. I appreciate the further probing into this subject matter - thank you!22/10/2016 #6 Deb HelfrichThe fluid mantle, the layer with give, is the crucial component to a functioning structure, community, and planet. And yet, our attention is often diverted to the crashing and erupting of the rigid surfaces and people.
@Irene Hackett, the way you have captured the zeitgeist and transmuted it into a clear, concise way to evaluate our daily actions, is priceless. I am buoyed by this buzz. Really grateful that you conveyed this correlation between our planet and our communities.22/10/2016 #5 Deb LangeGreat perspective reminding us once again we are nature. I wonder do we have "tectonic plates" inside our skulls that also have weak points and erupt? I love the story of the scientist realising g that to work with people who are suffering was where he needed to be and how this experience has informed his return to scie ce and creating a compassionate life.
I wonder about the weak points in an organisation where people suffer through intimidation, bullying g, etc and how behaviour erupts from these weak points to evolve the organisation.22/10/2016 #1 David B. GrinbergKudos @Irene Hackett for such an interesting, enlightening and thought-provoking read. The analogy drawn between plate tectonics and the human condition is fascinating to consider. Thanks again for this fresh and unique perspective, which exemplifies "sweet honey" to the letter!
